If you know me, you probably know my friend Heather of Mommypotamus. We’re known for hanging out in the sauna together (usually over a glass of wine), talking about all of the highs and lows of blogging, parenting, building community, and life with kids.
I always joke that Heather and I think so much alike we must share a brain. Well, we’ve hatched an idea together and today we plan to share it with all of you!
We can’t wait to hear what you think and hope you’ll be as excited as we are!

This podcast is brought to you by Rael, the new organic and natural feminine care brand that is completely redefining the world of menstrual products. Their three female founders came together after experiencing a lack of healthy and functional period pads and liners available most places. During their research, they found that pads and liners manufactured and sold by big drugstore brands were actually often made with extremely toxic ingredients like acetone, Styrofoam, and other carcinogens that you don’t want on your skin and especially not in a delicate place! They founded Rael, a company on a mission to give women safe and healthy alternatives that don’t sacrifice comfort or performance. Their pads and liners are sustainably made with 100% organic cotton, and they’ve become an Amazon Bestseller just a few months post-launch. They’ve since expanded their collection with biodegradable tampons, natural cleansers and wipes, menstrual underwear, and even a Period Beauty line featuring facial masks and acne patches designed specifically to alleviate hormonal skin issues. They’re excited to offer Wellness Mama listeners an exclusive discount to experience the difference firsthand: visit GetRael.com to learn more and enjoy 15% off your first purchase with code WELLNESSMAMA.
